There's been some great suggestions here. Since they covered more than 300 songs, you have unlimited opportunity. For a terrific taste of 1971 Dead I happen to love Ain't It Crazy (The Rub) featuring PigPen on the harp, and I Second That Emotion, both from the "Ladies & Gentleman" album, and not played that often, really sharp playing from Jerry. Unfortunately, not here on the archive -- but that playlist contains a boatload of good covers, including one they played over 400 times - Good Lovin', and BIODTL, played over 300 times.

Just for shits and giggles, how about Werewolves of London? ... http://www.archive.org/details/gd78-05-05.glassberg.vernon.18655.sbeok.shnf
